Trudeau, who became the first sitting prime minister to march in a Pride parade during last year’s event, will also be joined by other dignitaries including Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and Assembly of First Nations Chief Perry Bellegarde and more than 150 groups and organizations.
The issue first came to widespread public attention during last year’s parade, when members of the anti-racism group staged a sit-in that halted the march until Pride organizers signed a list of demands.
Black Lives Matter has argued that allowing uniformed officers at the parade could discourage marginalized communities from attending.
Parade organizers say that officers are welcome to attend the parade, so long as they don’t bring their uniforms, weapons and cruisers along.
